SOLD!!!! 12″ x 11″ Pop’s Vices is an assemblage piece representing the working man’s inner vices. An antique lunchbox is the base and the outside remains presentable, as father would be to the world.
The top shows father leaving his loving family for a day at work.
The cards on the sides depict fathers, hard at work.
Inside, we find the other side of father. The tools of leisure: the pipe, the cigarettes, the tobacco and lighter. The cards and dice. The drink. The pin-up girls and the evidence of lust. All hidden away from the world. But in this instance, the Pandora’s box is left wide open.
